Getting Men Into B.E.D (Body Ecology Diet)

I interviewed my husband, Tomas, to help other couples better understand each other when one, or both, is healing with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I met Tomas in 2011, I’d been on stage 1 of B.E.D. for a year to clear a stubborn systemic case of yeast overgrowth that was causing multiple health issues.

I was nervous that by sharing my body, I’d be re-exposed to yeast and bacteria from his own health issues and need to start my healing process over again.

At the time, I was a single mother working as a therapeutic chef and placenta encapsulationist and studying nutrition each evening in a graduate program. I was busy. Working his health/dietary needs was an added strain I’d do again in a heartbeat for eating the body ecology way brought us into balance (in more ways than one). I wish the same for you and your own intimate relationships.

How I Do Colonics In My Bathroom

20160116_225616I’ve been doing colonics since college and really got into them when I was in my 30’s, shortly after being diagnosed with yeast overgrowth. A friend lent a book called Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) that had a chapter on colon cleansing as part of a protocol to balance the body of excess yeast, bacteria, and viruses …. right up my alley!

Apple Cider Kefir: A Probiotic Recipe

This kefir is made from apple cider and starter; a sour ‘n fizzy concoction with a champagne-like taste …. pure effervescence rich in diverse, potent probiotic strains; basically a bunch of friendly flora that act as digestive aids to keep the gut in good shape. More benefits.

Looking for an easy, affordable way to get your probiotic dose? This might be for you. Especially if you have an issue with your gut (i.e. bloating, constipation) or yeast/bacterial overgrowth (i.e. Candida, GBS+). 

No matter what you have going on, a glass of juice kefir is a way to kick start a day and keep the internal bugs in balance.

My Healing Journal: Tracking Food Culprits

Journal Entry on September 12th 2010

When you have digestive upset, you know how difficult it can be to track down foods that bother you most. This is especially true when you have yeast overgrowth (Candida). My experience entailed keeping a ‘food journal’, doing rotation diets, and of course elimination diets.
